    There's tons of things to do! We have an on-campus bowling alley open all week, and $1 bowls on Thursday. There's a huge variety of clubs, activities, movies, and fun things to do offered all the time right here on campus for absolutely free. We also have a very huge greek life that one could become involved in if they so choose.

    There are alot of different activities on campus that you can join. You can also use the gym at any time. People are always outside playing frisbee, catch, and football that you can join in.

    There are a lot of extracurricular activities, but I have never really been one for sporty things. I was heavily involved with the Panther Marching Band and the Christian Campus House however and I had a great time.

    There is many things that you can do for fun depending on what you like to do for your spare time. We have a rec, we also have intramural and intercollegiate teams for enjoyment. They show movies on the weekends and have other activities such as parties and such. There is usually something going on all the time.

    There's always parties and those are always fun, but if your not into that, Eastern haves movie showings on Fridays of movies that are in theaters or just got out. There's a bowling ally, and the residents halls have pool tables and ping pong tables. You can play sports on the quad. Residence lobbies also let you rent out board games. Varsity sports games are fun; club sports are great too.

    If you can't find something to do on this campus, you are seriously not trying at all. There are parties everywhere. That's not your scene? Go check out the improv groups or a show in Doudna. Heck, go sit on the steps and just people watch. The rec center is a beautiful thing included with your tuition and fees, use it. Go to the bowling alley for some cheap games. Sports are almost a mandatory during your time here. You will probably run into President Perry at least once a month or so. Go to the library and check out a book or some DVDs. The residence halls usually do fun activities too.

    There's a lot to do at Eastern for fun. You can join clubs usually the first week into school. There's bowling and relatively new movies that you can watch every Friday. There's alway something to do on or off campus, just ask around.
